We walked through the park to the traditional Japanese garden, and on to the Sendagaya gate. Stopped off halfway through to have green tea at the tea house (and Japanese crackers and chocolate). Very beautiful and worth a visit!
I visited the Japanese garden very quickly on my last visit, so this visit, I planned a couple of hours to see more.
The feel of the Japanese garden extends throughout the entire Garden, and is just beautiful. There is a French rose garden with...More
The Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is a must see if you are in Tokyo, forget the Palace Gardens, this is so much better.

Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for
cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.

Hey Nick, tourist attractions in Japan are always very busy (compared to Australia) and this park is no exception. The day of the week might make a big difference so I’d suggest maybe a weekday over a weekend. If you arrive around opening time I’d suggest that the north western end of the park would be a good place to check out. It has a good path for walking, some wide open grassy seating areas and more private enclosed areas too. I’d recommend just going for a walk around the park and I’m sure the right place and time will reveal itself to you. Hope that helps. Good luck!
